UEFA: Barcelona can’t win Champions League playing same way, says Messi


Argentine and Barcelona star, Lionel Messi has revealed that his club team, Barcelona would not win the Champions League title while playing the same way.

The Barcelona captain urged his teammates at the Camp Nou to improve their games so as for the Catalans to win the Champions League this season when competitions resume.

CANDIIDONLINE reports that all football activities in Europe amd other parts of the world have been suspended due to coronavirus breakout.

Lionel Messi and his other teammates have however resumed individual training ahead of possible resumption of the Spanish La Liga season next month.

Lionel Messi futher told SportsExtra that he was more concerned about the Champions League as he wants his teammates to have the same feelings like him on the competition.

CANDIIDONLINE gathered that fans at the Camp Nou are still not happy with the ways Barcelona crashed out in the Champions League in the last two seasons against Roma and Liverpool.

It was gathered that last term’s elimination came as a great shock to them considering how they took a 3-0 lead to England where they suffered 4-0 defeat in the second leg against Liverpool.

Liverpool went on to win the Champions League last season beating fellow Premier League rivals Tottenham 2-0 in the final.

“I never doubted the squad we have and I have no doubt that we can win all that remains, but not by playing in the way we were playing.

“Now, everyone has their opinion and they are all very respectable. Mine is based on the fact that I was lucky to play the Champions League every year and I know that it is not possible to win it by playing as we have been playing.

“Perhaps Setién misunderstood or explained it wrong, we cannot win the Champions League by playing like how we did before the break.” he said.

For more than ten years now, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have been involved in serious rivalry most especially during when the Portuguese was playing for Real Madrid.

They have both won the Champions League and many other big titles with only the World Cup crown still missing in their cupboards.

Fans of these two players are also always involved in rivalry as they do compare them together with pundits also not left out of the topic.

Lionel Messi has won six Ballon d’Or awards in his career so far, while Cristiano Ronaldo has been decorated five times.
